4/2 – Devour (NEW WORKS SERIES)
This Tuesday, April 2nd, please join us for our reading in our NEW WORKS SERIES: “Devour” by Chelsea Marcantel.
Once a month, Play Club West is proud to present the reading of a NEW WORK (plays, screenplays, teleplays, one acts, tv pilots), followed by a post-reading talkback.
Anaïs von Windsor is a tabloid queen from the moment she’s born, but nothing can top her confession to the triple-murder of her ex-boyfriends. Unless of course she’s making it up. Through a series of non-linear vignettes, we are exposed to both sides of Anaïs: the hard-partying attention-whore she’s proud of, and the frighteningly wounded young girl she tries so hard to ignore. But does deciding for ourselves whether or not she’s a monster get us any closer to the truth?
